Each year Pam and I put together a list of songs that we have enjoyed from the past year. Now sometimes there is crossover from the year before. The list of songs is in no particular order. First up however is my nomination for Album of the Year
Matt Maher | Echoes
Probably that comes as no surprise. This album is a well crafted album. What I like about it is that Maher has taken the theme of the lyrics from several well known hymns and gospel songs and has redone them with new music and lyrics. Just to give you an idea we have titles like “What A Friend,” “Faithfulness,” “Holy,” “Just As I Am,” “Awake My Soul (A Thousand Tongues). Each of these songs is based on a classic hymn. Some of my other favorites are Your Love Defends Me (which will get listed below) and Least of These.
If I shared all the songs I like from this project you would have the whole album.
Here are Pam’s top choices for songs in 2017:
Even If | Mercy Me
Still | Hillary Scott
The Lion and the Lamb | Leeland
Forgiven | Crowder
Revival | Third Day
Run Devil Run | Crowder
Chainbreaker | Zach Williams
Home | Chris Tomlin
King of the World | Natalie Grant
